How can I convert and burn a WMV movie file onto a DVD?

Basically, my class had a project in which we used Windows MovieMaker to create documentary videos. Now, my teacher would like to play these movies on her classroom DVD player; however, both herself and I don't know how to make it so that we can convert and burn these WMV files onto a DVD and play it. Any and all help would be appreciated by tommorow morning (before 8:00 AM).

The easiest way around your trouble is to download a program like Movie Factory 3 or Nero Vission Express. These programs are used for creating movies with a menu system just like the ones you see and rent from a video store, or purchase off the shop. They are capable of taking all sorts of movie types such as MPG, AVI including WMV and making a movie DVD out of them.

If you know of a way to say turn a AVI or MPG to a DVD format but you can't cause its the wrong file type and you don't want to download another piece of software. Then I sugest you find yourself a converter that will convert the file type to a WMV file type and then burn it to a DVD.

Other problems could be you are using the wrong DVD type for the burner or the DVD player your using is not compatible with the DVD media you are using.

Have fun :thumbsup:
